WATCH: Huge Controversy As Leicester Lock Sees Red For High Shoulder Hit


Leicester Tigers lock Will Spencer has just been shown a red card in the Premiership for a controversial high shoulder hit on Wasps flanker Tommy Taylor that has sparked quite a reaction.

Taylor’s looked to be a pretty nasty collision, but the size difference perhaps should have been considered. He clearly bends his knees and doesn’t look like it was anything intentional.

Tigers captain Tom Youngs was not impressed with the decision claiming:

“Rugby has changed, rugby has changed.”

A number of current and former players have also come out in Twitter, with many feeling it should not have been a red. What do you think? Letter of the law red or was their mitigating circumstances that should have seen it reduced?
